Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

YA-- "How many letters are there in the alphabet? 24; E.T. went home." Silly, but probably a good way to keep the interest of third- and fourth-year Latin students or amused browsers. Few of the riddles are original, but until the hidden answer pages in the back are found, the whole book seems "Greek to me." The clever illustrations add to the interest. This title will be a fun addition to the foreign language collection of nearly any high school; Latin hardly seems a "dead language" when it appears in modern riddles.

"If you can imagine the world that might have resulted had Bernard Malamud and
